I've been awaiting the eight season of Entourage like Eminem's been awaiting a proper dueling-sesh with Vince (no spoilers, honest!), but if you want to see the special Hollywood Sunset: A Farewell Tribute to Entourage before it hits DVD and HBO, the only way to get it is through iTunes (for now.)

This is notable because we're going to be seeing a lot more of these Apple scoops in the future, as they continue to wrest power from the actual studios, and also puts yet another nail in the coffin of optical formats. Now, I don't anticipate the death of DVDs and Blu-rays anytime soon—in fact, I hope it never happens—but the decline of products with optical drives has been noted, and must be scaring the movie studios silly.
